5.0 out of 5 stars Moore acts !!!!! 1 Dec 2005
This is an exciting drama featuring two fine performances by Roger Moore. In the first he is a mild mannered and rather starchy businessman and in the second his characters own rather dark, ruthless alter ego. The rst of the cast is quite acceptable and th film moves at a brisk pace. It is good to have this film on DVD because it is similar in style to the old ITC classics ofthe 60s (of which Moore's own 'The Saint' was the most famous). This type of drama is something the British, or indeed anyone else, has seemingly lost the art of achieving. First rate stuff. I acn't wait fo the 2006 release of 'Crossplot', Moore's other British made film of th late 60s.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect double-act 7 Feb 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although Roger Moore is mostly known for his James Bond movies, I think you can toss all those. `The Man Who Haunted Himself' is by far Roger Moore's best movie.

The story is fairly simple but it builds up quite nicely. Roger Moore - a conservative businessman with a lovely wife and two perfect children, and who works in the City - on his way home one evening engages in a spot of mad driving and ends up in an accident. Following his recovery he continues his set life yet increasingly finds that he is being pushed out of this life by someone else who happens to be himself. It sounds all very confusing, but that's the story in a nutshell.

I agree with the other reviewers here that this is masterpiece of acting. What I really love about this movie is the double-act Roger Moore plays as the ever more successful businessman and at the same time increasingly haunting himself right into the final showdown when he faces himself down.

Excellent show!

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This BluRay transfer has got to be seen to be believed,the colours are amazing as are the clarity of the scenes,for a film of this age it's hats off to network for the incredible work that has gone in to this,If you are a fan of this film & to see that Roger Moore really can act (his finest acting in his career in my opinion) then you must get this & thank god for technology that can do something like this to a classic gem of a movie..

5.0 out of 5 stars harold pelham haunts himself in hd. 27 Jun 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
well done network, what a great bluray/dvd set. as a long time fan of this film, i am over the moon. both discs even have the soundtrack music as extras, which have been very hard to get. i think the only thing that is missing is some info on harold pelhams rover p5b and his other selfs lambo, to see if the film company owned them, what they did with them after filming ended, and if they still exist. if you are a fan of this movie, its a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great thriller from 1970! 5 April 2007
Classic suspense thriller from 1970 starring Roger Moore.

No time wasted here in getting straight into the action with a speeding car and spectacular crash! Roger Moore plays a handsome well-to-do married man with two children. After a near fatal car crash, what follows is a string of unexplained 'incidents' that leads to the character's confusion and bewilderment. This could be simple amnesia due to brain damage caused by the accident, but it's far more sinister than that! A thrill every minute and suspense around every corner!

There's a great supporting cast here including; Anthony Nicholls (looking much older having aged dreadfully in the couple of years since 'The Champions' of '68) Charles Lloyd Pack, Anton Rodgers (some viewers not old enough to remember will be knocked down at how extremely fit and handsome he was!) Gerald Sim, and Thorley Walters who supplies the humour in his jovial, but boring character role - remarkably like an earlier Nigel Bruce. Great performances, and added to a wonderful music score provided by the theme, gives this a recipe for great entertainment! Fast-paced and exciting film with no time to get bored!

Look out for Roger Moore making an interesting reference to James Bond!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moore able to act away from type 17 Oct 2006
I thoroughly recommend this DVD which has a Commentry made 2001/2 which includes Roger Moore and Bryan Forbes with Journalist Jonathan Sothcott who show a love of their industry.Although momentarily they get mixed up calling John Welsh as Anthony Nicholls their memory is in great shape and Moore can remember the places and what he had to do plus interesting information.The film is in great shape with no evidence of wear or fading.It was made at a time of the bowler hat, chambers you could enter without badges and wooden walled board rooms.The film made on a small budget shows none of the consequences of this and the professionalism of the director Basil Dearden and camerman is ever present.The film has a strong contingent of actors including John Carson, Hildegard Neil,Gerald Sims and Anton Rodgers all happily still with us.However this is Moore's film and it is much to the credit of those who chose him and for his portrayal of a man pushed to the limits between his safe self and his worrying second self.

4.0 out of 5 stars Roger Raises A Few Eyebrowse 13 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I first saw this film when I was eight years old and it totally creeped me out. Firstly seeing Roger Moore as a stiff business type with a horrible moustache and secondly exhibiting frailties one never normally associated with the Saint. Upon revisiting the film as an adult I was delighted to say how much I enjoyed it. There is much to enjoy on this European Region two import. The DVD transfer is pretty good as are some of the extras, notably a featurette where Gremlins directer Joe Dante gives his opinion of the film. The Man Who Haunted Himself seldom if ever appears on TV or cable and that is a shame. Its a gripping, thought provoking film shot with a real visual flare the like of which is missing in a lot of contemporary psychological thrillers. Its a pity Roger Moore was never offered many meaty roles as he conducts himself with real aplomb here. Highly recommended four stars.
